About Our Kids' Game and Murder Mystery Game Designers
About Susan Haley, Creative Director, Game Designer
is originally from Massachusetts - where she started
her company back in 1987. In 1993, she relocated to Northern California with
her two very large Maine Coon cats, Sherlock and Watson. She still
goes back to Cape Cod to visit her family but California
has become her home, especially since May of 2001 when she married her husband Bill,
a San Francisco Bay Area photographer (he photographed Susan here). From
the time she was a very young girl,
Susan has always loved acting and creative writing. She graduated
Summa Cum Laude and has a BA in Theater Arts with a minor in Business
Communications from Salem State College in Salem, Mass., "where
the witches are".
To Susan, there's nothing like doing a job about which you're absolutely
passionate. Her passion these days? Creating her inspiring, memorable
do-it-yourself mystery games and scavenger
hunts. And rescuing shelter dogs and cats. And working with Pets for Patriots.
Debbie lives in Columbia, South Carolina with her husband, two party-loving children and one very silly, adorable mutt named Holly. Her family had such a fun time hosting Operation Kovert Kids that she decided to collaborate with Susan Haley of Haley Productions to create Operation Birthday Bash, Operation Reindeer Games and Operation Romantic Rendezvous (a scavenger hunt for couples).
Lisa Marten lives in Michigan with her husband, son and two energetic labs that never seem to need a nap to recharge. She hosted Operation Kovert Kids in 2005 and the kids from her son's class raved about it for months. So she decided to do it again the next year but could not find something that her son liked, so they made up one of their own using ideas from all over, including his classmates. When their pirate party was over she decided to work with Haley Productions to post it online so that everyone could try it out. After all, who doesn't want to be a pirate for a day?
I had the opportunity to organize and host Operation Recovery at my workplace for nearly 100 people well over a year ago. It was a huge success and has made a huge impact on team project work, work relationships and even business results. Many people still talk about the event even today and I’m sure it will be in our memories for many years to come.
This event inspired me to create The Great Easter Hunt and Scavenger Hunt Game Part 1 & The Great Easter Hunt and Scavenger Hunt Game Part 2 for our family Easter celebrations last year. Everyone was tired of the same old holiday tradition of children eating candy all day, the men watching sporting events on television, while the women cooked and did dishes most of the day. It turned out to be an absolutely fun day for everyone. Our youngest participant was 3 and the oldest was 86!
My name is Barbara Pelat from Emeryville, Ontario, Canada. I have two adult children named Christina and Sherri-Ann. I work for an automotive parts manufacturing facility in Windsor, Ontario.
I hope your family or group enjoys The Great Easter Hunt as much as ours did.
My name is Janet Pogasic. I live in Michigan with my husband and four young boys. Our family hosted Operation Kovert Kids scavenger hunt to celebrate our oldest son’s 10th birthday, which is very close to Halloween. We couldn’t resist adding all sorts of Halloween fun into the hunt. The party was a huge success!
After thanking Susan Haley, owner of Haley Productions for the wonderful scavenger hunt and sharing some ideas with her, we both agreed that my Halloween Hunt could stand on its own. What a perfect party to have at Halloween time! So, I was thrilled to create Operation Haunted House Hunt, a spooky-fun scavenger/adventure hunt.
